Shoe­box ap­peal time at Com­mu­nity Col­lege

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

CASTLEIS­LAND Com­mu­nity Col­lege teach­ers and stu­dents are busily mak­ing toys us­ing re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als for their an­nual Christ­mas Shoe­box Ap­peal.

The com­mu­nity col­lege re­duces, reuses and re­cy­cles for its shoe­box ap­peal.

It also places a huge em­pha­sis on re­us­able ma­te­rial in the make up of the shoe­boxes them­selves.

The shoe­box ap­peal has high­lighted the im­por­tance of re­cy­cling as stu­dents are en­cour­aged to bring in toys that are in good con­di­tion but no longer in use.

The Tran­si­tion Year Con­struc­tion stud­ies class, un­der the guid­ance of teacher Ai­dan Joy, are mak­ing wooden toys from small pieces of wood left over from Ju­nior and Leav­ing Cer­tifi­cate projects.

Art classes are mak­ing soft toys from scraps of ma­te­rial with their art teacher, Pia Thorn­ton, and the third-year stu­dents are mak­ing up shoe­boxes for their CSPE project with their teacher, Doreen Killing­ton.

Mem­bers of the com­mu­nity who wish to do­nate a shoe box can ob­tain a leaflet at the school, and they are wel­come to drop off their shoe boxes be­fore Novem­ber 9 to the school.
